Lexus Australia has committed to rolling out innovative visibility technology to its sedan and SUV range. Lexus was the first marque in Australia to standardise reverse cameras in 2003, and is now in the process of making blind spot monitoring* and Rear Cross Traffic Alert* technology available to all its customers.

The first vehicles to receive the accident-avoiding technology include the soon-to-launch NX and RC Lines.

Existing IS, ES, GS and LS, which currently feature available blind spot monitoring, will receive Rear Cross Traffic Alert technology before the end of 2014.

Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said that the addition of the innovative specification reaffirms Lexus’ commitment to safety.

“Lexus already offers reverse camera as standard across our entire model range and the addition of Rear Cross Traffic Alert and blind spot monitoring only strengthens our stance on safety,” Mr Hanley said.

“We are committed to ensuring that the innovative safety technology is available across as many of our models as quickly as possible, starting with the all-new NX and RC.”

At launch, the all-new Lexus NX will offer a 360-degree panoramic view monitor* on selected models.

The technology enables drivers to conduct a visual ‘sweep’ of the vehicle’s exterior prior to driving away to ensure the vehicle is clear of obstructions.
